  • WebGL: The Next Generation
  • Time: 9:30am - 10:30am | Room: YBCA Forum
WebGL, the hardware-accelerated 3D graphics API for HTML5 applications, is now ubiquitous, running on all browsers and platforms from desktop to mobile. So what’s next?

This entry-level session covers the latest developments, including WebGL 2, the next major upgrade which already runs in Firefox and is coming later this year to Chrome. The session also takes a look at two related developments: glTF, the emerging standard for downloading 3D graphics into WebGL-based applications, and WebVR, the experimental JavaScript API for developing browser-based virtual reality. Join 3D graphics pioneer, author and WebGL developer Tony Parisi in an exploration of all things 3D for the web.
